not an Indiana Jones movie; I refuse to accept it.

Chris said...

...entertaining and that's just what I hoped to get.

J.D. said...

... as of yet, unseen by me.

skillful in letting its audience forget that it can expect (much) more (pauses, three-dimensionality, silences).

Jose said...

good for what it is, but not as good as we wanted it to be.

J.L.D. said...

a good installment into the series

Janice said...

...hopelessly irrelevant.

Scott said...

actually Indiana Jones and Son. Maybe they should open a funeral home for the 5th movie.

Rural Juror said...

SPOILER







. . . about aliens (?), apparently. No thanks.

Nick Davis said...

...kind of a lame title.

Joe Reid said...

more fun than I expected.

Kamikaze Camel said...

...not as refreshing as Crystal Pepsi

Beau said...

obscenely over the top and terribly mediocre.

Spielberg is not Eastwood. You don't have to kiss his ass every time he puts his name on a product.

Michael Parsons said...

coming to a DVD rent by mail service in the next couple of months.

...well, I'm gonna just say that I am stuck in Palm Coast FL for the summer. I went to go see Indy at the only movie theater in town.

It's a 3 screen theater in a strip mall.

It wasn't even open. Like, there was nobody in the building. They didn't bother with a 9:10 screening.

I'm in Hell.

sarcastig said...

... best seen, for the experience rather than the movie, in a packed cinema with plenty audience participation.


The first half is actually quite fun. But altogether... I liked it. Raiders it is not, but did anyone honestly think it could be?

JS said...

... being exploited for a new comment du jour.

popcorn.

crazycris said...

... fun (but would have been better in English and with trimmed fight sequences)

Anonymous said...

intense.

Ali Arikan said...

people.

NATHANIEL R said...

like as in made from people? or made of people like soylent green?

JS. You crack me up "exploited for a comment du jour" -TOTALLY TRUE!

Dominique L. said...

terribly stupid and insulting to my intelligence, even more so because it comes from (supposedly) intelligent people.

Glenn said...

...fun for two thirds of the runtime and then the action scenes go for too long, there's a ridiculous extraneous bug sequence ala King Kong and the end turns into a CGI nightmare of swirling rocks and over-the-top silliness.

Rob said...

fun enough, if underwhelming and hampered by an overly goofy second half.

Kurtis O said...

nothing to write home about.

Kamila said...

... something I really look forward to see this weekend.

NATHANIEL R said...

y'all are definitely NOT making me excited to see this. But that's as I expected anyway. Why must we ruin great things through nostalgia?

17 Year Old Blogger said...

Horrible. I liked the first 90 minutes but then it just falls about. Ford and Blanchett are superb though.

Rob said...

Um. You liked the first 90 minutes but the last 25 minutes rendered the whole movie HORRIBLE?

Nate Tyson said...

Just saw it...and had a pretty good time.

The aliens aren't really that strange when you consider that the first three movies were about preposterously unbelievable concepts.

Glenn said...

Nate! Spoilers!

WickedScorp said...

for the most part, ludicrously boring and silly... bad silly.

J.D. said...

(now having seen it)

... surprisingly excellent. Awesomely weird, but awesome nonetheless. One thing though: Why is Cate so hot it it? *drools*

amir_uk said...

...photographed by Janusz Kaminski!! Who proceeds to bathe the film in gorgeous light! Words cannot describe how exponentially more excited I became about the film when I saw his name come up in the opening credits.

There's this one close-up of Cate (a standout) in which the frame is filled with this shimmering crystal light. Would make a great, iconic still from the film. I would LOVE a lobby card of that still, please!

Anonymous said...

. . . may be a perfectly innocuous "B" movie, but the relentless, bullying movie promotion used by rich, arrogant, powerful men used to being slavishly adored (or else) that demands I accept the movie as the embodiment of MY personal imaginative fantasy life is very off-putting.

Cheurch said...

.... not for me.

Ashley said...

hateful. insulting. preposterous. cate is WAY over the top and off in some different movie!

NATHANIEL R said...

nice range of opinions here although almost no one seems to truly love
